Reviewed by Roy T. James for Readers' Favorite

Wisdom on How to Live Life (Book 3) by Dr. Tommy S.W. Wong is about the spiritual wisdom that can transform earth into heaven. It is in fact a conversation that, Tom, a common man, has with Guru Harry about life, when the Guru remarks that life on earth is becoming more and more difficult. Further questions by Tom lead the master to admit that it need not be so; life on earth does not have to be a troublesome one if we follow the correct approach. Choosing co-operation rather than competition, having a ‘caring’ society, removing the fear of death, and other similar actions if taken in time can lead us to the correct approach. Also, this can lead us to a more spiritual society that is a repository of peace.

Wisdom on How to Live Life (Book 3) by Dr. Tommy S.W. Wong expresses in simple conversation snippets great truths of life. In this exchange, the proponent dwells mainly on removing fear and confusion from earth. The complete dialog between Guru Harry and the disciple Tom can lead one to learning the fundamental truth – we have to follow the correct approach, all the components of which are there for the learning, contained in the replies to Tom’s questions. This is a good book, but one needs to read the book again and again to extract the ‘truths’ hidden in the replies by Guru Harry. I found this book not very difficult to follow and the sublime ideas are presented in a logical manner.
